United drops meal fee plan

September 03, 2008|From Times Wire Services

United Airlines dropped a plan to charge as much as $9 for meals in the coach cabin of some overseas flights, citing feedback from customers.

The carrier had intended to offer food for sale aboard trips to Europe from the Washington area's Dulles International Airport starting Oct. 1. The Chicago carrier would have been the first in the U.S. to end free meals on such flights.

"They told us quite directly and candidly that they value hot meals," said Robin Urbanski, a United spokeswoman.
